MARUFUJI CAFE serves some beautiful and tasty Japanese-style desserts. The matcha pancakes pictured here are a sure bet. They come served with adzuki sweet beans and whipped cream. You should also try their colourful dango sticks! They're super chewy mochi rice balls of different flavours (sweet and savoury) grilled on a skewer. Also, their Japanese-style parfaits complete with matcha ice cream and jelly, mochi balls, adzuki bean paste and fruits, are some of the best in town.

Located near Tennoji station.

Amato Maeda

This is a retro cafe that also features some of the best traditional sweets. Here, the kakigori (shaved ice) bowls are particularly popular. Unlike other cafes, their kakigori is topped with some soft-serve ice cream along with the more common ingredients (mochi balls, green tea mochi balls and sweet adzuki bean paste). Their dango sticks flavoured with a sweet and slightly salty soy-based sauce are also really nice. Don't forget to pair your dessert with their excellent Japanese green tea!

Located near Namba station.


This small 12-seat reclusive cafe is a little gem. It's a bit hard to find, as it doesn't even have a sign, but if you manage to find it, you'll be rewarded with some exquisite traditional-style mochi sweets. Their ¥700 sets come with different types: sesame, strained adsuki beans, adzuki bean paste, matcha, and white mochi.

Located near Kitahama station. Note that the cafe is closed on weekends.


Gokan, a shop of longstanding famous in Osaka, is the perfect place to have some high-end pastries at a fairly reasonable price (about ¥200 to ¥500 per pastry). Every pastry is beautiful and with delicate flavourful notes. They have some seasonal creations made with ripe Japan-produced fruits that are really worth the try.

Gokan is very near the Kitahama station.
